Llywelyn the Last..

Coronet of G..
At the beginning, Prince Charles sits in armchair and talks to camera about his forth coming investiture ceremony at Carnarvon Castle, Wales..Later, the ceremony starts at Carnavron Castle.. Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh arrive..

Of The Prince Of Wales Aka POW (1969)..

The tradition of investing the heir-apparent of the English, and subsequently British, monarch with the title of "Prince of Wales" began in 1301, when King Edward I of England, having completed the conquest of Wales, gave the title to his heir-apparent, Prince Edward (later King Edward II of England)..

It is recorded that Llywelyn ap Gruffudd had deposited his coronet along with his other regalia with the monks at Cymer Abbey for safekeeping at the start of his final campaign in 1282.. He was killed later that year.. It was seized and presented to King Edward I of England as a token of the complete annihilation of the independent Welsh state...

Prince Charles was created Prince of Wales and Earl of Chester by Letters Patent on 26 July 1958,though his actual investiture did not take place until 1 July 1969..The ceremony began with Prince Charles, led by the regalia bearers, entering the Chamberlain Tower, to await the arrival of Her Majesty.. Once the royal family had arrived, the lesser members took their seat in the gallery, but the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh, led by the Earl of Snowdon, the Lord Great Chamberlain, the Earl Marshal and the Gentleman Usher carrying the Great Sword of State,made their way to the stage where the investiture was to be conducted.. As they came to the stage Prince Charles knelt before the 3 thrones on the stage.. During the reading of the Letters Patent in Welsh, the Queen invested Charles with the girdle, sword, coronet, ring, rod and kingly mantle, in that order. Prince Charles then stated, "I, Charles, do become your liege man of life and limb and of earthly worship, and faith and truth I bear unto you, to live and die against all manner of folks".. Charles then customarily kissed the Queen's cheek and they embraced..The Letters Patent stated that Charles Phillip Arthur George would receive the title, style, honour and privilege of the Principality of Wales and Earldom of Chester"...

The investiture was watched by millions on TV, and attracted large and excited crowds in Caernarfon, but it also aroused considerable hostility among a minority of nationalist and republican Welsh people, some of whom were under constant police surveillance and were the subject of much intimidation from the secret services..On the eve of the investiture 2 were killed whilst placing a bomb outside government offices in Abergele.. In recent years, it has been claimed that the KGB plotted to disrupt the proceedings by bombing a bridge in Porthmadog..In recent opinion polls the majority of Welsh people have remained in favour of the monarchy with 70% plus support the usual figure; a poll in North Wales in 2003 by the Daily Post found 80% of respondents wanted Prince William to become the next Prince of Wales...

In dieser Zeromonie gibt Queen Elizabeth ihrem Sohn die Insignien, durch diesen Schritt wird er zum Prince of Wales... remember this - in this country they drive on the wrong side of the road.. It's a very difficult job and the only way to get through it is we all work together as a team..She brought us up propearly and taught us loyalty..There are a quarter of a million Italians in Britain and they'll be made to suffer..He says he wants to sit up in front with the driver!..
